Best gift I have recieved: A trip to Gettysburg for my birthday. 

Currently watching: Futurama for the 4th or 5th time. It's just funny to me.

Week of the Young Child

April 8 - 12, 2019

In support of our youngest learners, the Library partnered with Lakeland’s Early Childhood Education program, the Teaching Learning Center & Campus Kids, to recognize the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s “Week of the Young Child”.  This annual celebration spotlighted early learning, young children, their teachers, families and communities. The Library provided children's books for story-time reading related to the themes of the day: Music Monday, Tasty Tuesday, Work Together Wednesday, and Artsy Thursday. In addition to promoting language and early literary skills, fun activities accompanied the learning events.

Lakeland Library asks...

Blackout poetry

Create a piece of blackout poetry...

To celebrate National Poetry Month, students, faculty, and staff made creative poetry designs using template pages from classic novels. The poetry was displayed in the Library, and a winner was selected from a drawing of the submissions. Congratulations to Stormy McClellan who won a $10 gift card from the Book Store! 

A Bowl Full of Serials
